Posted in British Fashion Designers by Gregory on August 22, 2010

UK designer Michael Lewis, has made great headway since qualifying from Central Saint Martins, London. With an impeccable curriculum vitae of pupillage of working alongside Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, Christopher Bailey at Burberry and Tom Ford at Gucci. Then you are going to expect something more than above average from Michael Lewis. Solet us take a look at what is on offer at from this Autmn / Winter collection.

Michaels’ signature,  aims to bring to his women a “flamboyant, sensual, fun and luxurious footwear,” which I’m sure he has achieved his aims with this Autumns collection. He looks for girls with the ” joie de vivre” as he feels they will appreciate his artistic talents the most. Well Michael, there are going to be  plenty of us out there for you to please!

As for his Spring collection, He has said the collection is  going to be inspired by “Guido Mocafico, confectionary and Willy Wonka.” Perhaps we are going to see a shoe that tastes of summer cherries and cream, srpinkled with milk chocholate drops, and finished in snake skin patterns… I cannot wait to see if he is going to use the parisian artists’ serpentine collection for his inspiration , take a look at these, what do you think? arent they beautiful?

Just imagine the fun Michael will have drawing the patterns that these creatures are creating, then translating them into his final shoe designs, great life. He will be challenging competition not only for any new designer, but also for those established names.

I’m sure we will all look forward to his Spring collection.

Any thoughts?

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on August 22, 2010

When it comes to the great outdoors, I am one who normally grabs hold off my Karrimor daysack and off I go without a second thought as to my “bag”. Until I came across this new Army Handhack Backpack by Marc Jacobs…take a look.

So I took a look at several oline camping  stores to see if they carried any fashionable bags that would be a match for the Marc Jacobs. The short answer was no. They had lots of excellant designed and colourful bags, but no retro canvas, stylish daysacks. Therefore, if I was planning a gap year around europe, and having to  travel light, then this MJ would be stapped on my back.

If you prefer, I did find one backpack from Prada, the “PradaVela Backpack”, it maybe what you are looking for, what do you think?
